Turkey With Oysters

Meal.Mates's picture
The other day I caught my aunt making Turkey With Oysters for her guests. Freshly cut celery, leeks and sauteed in chicken fat was tempting, as I stood next to her. A recipe with carefully chopped turkey, oysters coated up with butter, lots of cream and meat broth can never go wrong. Served hot with sprinkled fresh parsley is a must try.
